What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body. These points are located along channels through which 'qi' flows. Qi is your body's vital energy. Pain and illness are believed to occur when the natural flow of qi has been disrupted or depleted in some way. This could be due to a number of factors such as injury, viral infection, stress, over work or poor diet. Treatment is aimed at restoring the flow of qi to promote your body's own healing process and restore both physical and emotional health.
